Brrrrrrr !!!!! A cold 7 degrees this morning made me want to snuggle down and wait for the sun to warm things up a bit but the animals had other ideas so my day began.
I carried a bucket of water from the house to the chicken houses since I knew their water pans would be frozen solid. I use some plastic feeder pans I bought to feed calves in years ago. These pans are old but they are very sturdy and even with slamming them onto the ground to break the ice from them they don't crack.
Feeding time takes longer on these below freezing mornings and today I really got chilled before I got back inside. Even with the bright sun shine and this glorious blue sky it was very cold .
Daughter sent me this pic of one of the secondary roads they went out on today and they are really icy.
Hubbie and I made a crock pot full of vegetable soup for everyone today. Aa came by for an early lunch before he went to scrape snow and #1 son's family came by for a late lunch.
The kids wanted to play in the snow for a while but it only warmed up to 19 degrees so they didn't stay out long.
This is a really good snow to sled in as it is frozen and slick and the sled goes very fast.
G-son caught some air on one of the bumps in the driveway.
G-daughter was the first one to get cold and want to come back inside. She had a tomato for a snack while she watched her brother through the back door.
A really fun way to end a snowed in weekend !!!
Thankful to God for the blessings of this day and praying for all the folks who must brave the slick roads tomorrow morning , may they all be safe .
God Bless and Good Night.
